Windshield Replacement process with Insurance Companies
The cost of replacing a windshield can vary depending on a number of factors, including the make and model of your vehicle, the type of glass that is needed, and the location of the repair.
A full coverage insurance policy for your front windshield can save you from costly replacement fees. The cost of a replacement can range from $175 to $2000, but with the right auto glass repair and replacement shop, such as Zorro Auto Glass, your deductible can be $0.
As a preferred installer for most major insurance companies, Zorro Auto Glass offers benefits to customers who work with them through their insurance. The shop is thoroughly vetted by insurers to ensure the quality of their technicians, their experience, and the types of glass they repair and replace. This includes using OEM approved glass for windshield replacements.
The cost of a replacement may also vary based on the type of windshield, as some vehicles have advanced features such as:
- Rain sensors
- Automotive Night Vision
- Infrared Glass
- Heads up display
- And more….
These factors are taken into account when calculating the cost, but with comprehensive insurance, the expense is covered. Additionally, damage to a windshield that is out of your control is considered a "no fault" claim, meaning your monthly rates shouldn't increase.
To begin the process, simply contact Zorro Auto Glass's customer care team and they will assist with making the claim. The company will then come to your location within the Houston Texas Metro Area to perform the service, usually taking around 30 minutes, and if it's a windshield replacement, it comes with a lifetime warranty.
If you don't have comprehensive coverage on your insurance policy, or if your policy has a deductible that you will have to pay before coverage kicks in, you will be responsible for paying the full cost of the windshield replacement. If you don't have full coverage insurance, Zorro Auto Glass also offers customized plans that fit your budget.
In summary, if you have comprehensive coverage on your auto insurance policy, the cost of replacing your windshield may be covered. However, it's important to check with your insurance provider to confirm what your policy covers, if you have a deductible, or if the company you choose is on their approved list of providers.
